I seem to have broken my SOAP ESXi sensor.

It was working fine for a number if months and this week I rebooted the PRTG Core server and started to get these messages on all the ESX sensors.

I have obviously corrupted something -any ideas on how to fix ?

Deleting and re-adding the sensor does not fix it.

Dear StubbletUK

If you log into vSphere, are you getting any further information?

Please also try to clear the logs and/or a restart of the CIM service.

However before you do that, please create an extensive debug log file for the VMWare Soap sensor from the command line. To send log files, please contact us via [email protected].
